IDF says two drones shot down after Iraqi group claims attack

The Israel Defense Forces says it shot down two drones headed to Israeli territory.

The statement comes shortly after the Iran-backed Islamic Resistance in Iraq claimed to have launched two drones at Eilat.

The IDF says fighter jets shot down the two drones, which had been headed for Israel from the east. No other details are given.

Neither drone entered Israeli airspace, the army adds.

The Iraqi group claimed it had launched the drone in defense of Gaza. A video published by the group showed two drones being launched, though the timing seemed to indicate they had not been the pair shot toward Israel.
